Boy … you passed out all of us! There are some really nice love stories here in the QC. Here are some of our favorites.
Happy Valentine’s Day Quad Cities!
We wanted to know how couples in the area met and fell in love and boy, you all passed out. Here are some of the cutest stories from our Facebook callouts:
Sam Nelson: “I met my husband in a bar in Geneseo while I was doing karaoke. He had to leave that night because he was over the road truck driver. I told him when he came back to call me and just say mom “I’m coming home and bring me a dozen roses. That’s exactly what he did 2 weeks later. We’ve been together ever since. I still have the roses in my freezer and it’s been almost 20 years.”
Coleen and Dana Cox: “On the first day of 6th grade, I couldn’t open my locker, so I kicked it. My current wife came over and opened it for me. Marry your best friend, it makes for a happy life.”
Tiffany McKenney: “My husband and I met through our grandparents. My grandma died and my husband’s grandpa died. Our grandparents got married and shortly after my husband and I met. We’ll be married for 18 years on Valentine’s Day.”
Sharon Selander: “Went to a labor conference halfway across the country and my colleague brought him to have dinner with us when he was there alone. He said hello … and that’s about it! I’ve been here since then pulled and couldn’t be happier together. “
Cathy Covemaker: “53 years ago my husband helped me out of a stream after my horse threw me off. This was in the Hillandale stable in Milan. We have been married for 51 years.”
Kim Mulder:: “Back in 7th grade, I love the X-Files show … well, I was in love with Fox Mulder (David Duchovny). So I told my best friends in 7th grade that I was going to marry someone by their last name Mulder so I can essentially marry Fox Mulder. So, jump to 2005 I’m in the South Park Mall and I see a cute guy who works at Sbarro Pizza and I think, hmmmm, I’ll ask for his number, why not So I go up and ask for his number and I’m lucky because he says yes! He’s writing his number on a piece of paper called Fox and I think wow it would be crazy if his last name was Mulder. Well it it turns out his last name was Mulder and Foxx has been his nickname since his last name was Mulder. Together since 2005 and married since 2012. “
